Varieties [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 April 1847
Vartre: te -o RArr DmeeaNo,-The extreme rapidity with which the Americans devour their foodl, for it really de serves no other appellation, has been emarked by all travellers in the States. Yet to this, as well as to many other peculiarities of our American friends, we soon became reconciled as to a thing of course. The prevailing practice of living at a " table d'hote," or at boarding-houses, amongst a numerous and mixed society, has probably originated this unbe coming and unhealthy practice. The meals at ho tels are always provided in common with the inmates of the establishment.: for the out-door as well as the in-door boarder and traveller, who, by-the-by, is frequently most inconveniently obliged to accom modate himself to their hours. There are seldom less than from eighty to one hundred in any respect able hotel, or, as they are more usually called public houses, who sit down together, and who are either summoned to meals by the loud beat of an Indian gong, or the ringing of...
THE EDUCATION OF EDUCATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 April 1847
- THlI EDUCATION OF EDUCATOIS. (From the Nottingham Revleiw.) However trite tlie subject of education, its impor tance will justify its repeated discussion, and render such discussioni interesting rather than tedious in the estimation of the wise and tlie philanthropic; for -on the adoption of some just and well-matured system of training, depends both the happiness and -dignity of the present, and the elevation, the free duni, and prosperity of succeeding generations. It is as lamentable as it is true, however, that popular conceptions of education have been usually as low, as the great reality itself is exalted,--that the most -mercenary and huxtering spirit Irhs dictated its arrangements, and schoolmasters, in instances in -numer-alte, been found the maimers, the corrupters, niilt as to after-capacity, the.rrn.rderers, rather than Stie hiagh-minded and efficient developers of the juvenile mind. iTeaching -to live-reducing the wliple subject to one of pecuniary profit rind loss - ...

INTERMENT IN TOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 April 1847
INTERMENT IN TOWNS. (From the AMedical Times.) 1Ihe Registrar-General's host report. Informs us that the- mortality in the metropulis is .higher than bh t in the country, be ng ia the .roportion of 2,204 to 2,209 per cent., a clear proof that there are some causes in operation to shorten the lives of the inhabitants of large towns. What those causes are it is the duty of the Legislature to discover, and, if possible, to remedy ; and one of them is so plainly indicated by Mr. Chadwick, in his supple mentary report on the practice of Interment in towns, that we consider it quite unnecessary to re argue this part of the question. Those who con tend tha: the practice is not injurious to health are taking up it view contrary to the principles upon which they proceed to legislate in other cases. Other arguments have been adduced in favour of a change in the practice, and among these we select that which is based on the indecency of the practice. We know, on good authority, that in a certa...

Ecrces iatiral inteligge tfe, _-0_ -Tae INsrtrsTH or PaovIDENCE.-At the end of September, in the new Convent of the Providence at Vitteaux, several aspirants took the veil and several novices made their profession in presence of the united congregation assembled at the close of the annual retreat. The Bishop of Dijon presided at this ceremony, which was a novelty in this neigh bourhood, the convent having been but lately (within the last six months) transferred from Flavigny to this the ancient dwelling-house of the Minims. The history of the house, founded by the family of Lan guet, who have left imperishable memorials of their piety and charity, and who gave to the Church of France, the celebrated Cure of St. Sulpice, is the history of human vicissitudes. Sold in 1793, and transformed into stables, its walls were afterwards devoted to the purposes of a manufactory, and on the ruin of the proprietors it was bought and restored by the Sisters of Providence. And what is their Institu...
CATHOLIC EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 April 1847
CATHOLIC EMIGRANTS. (From the Tablet, Nov. 7 Howard, the prisoners' friend, devoted his life to the alleviation of their distress, the consequence of their crimes, for the most part, but in num berless Instances, of their oppressions. Mrs Chisholm, who has , just returned from New South WVajes, a married lady,. wife of a zpilitartr officer late of the Madras army, possessing a mind of the Howard genus, has devoted all her leisure, and more than her leisure, during the last four or five years, to facilitating the settlement in that colony to friendless emigrants of both sexes, where settlements were either being sought by them, or accepted when proffered; and also in administering to the occupation (by service) of others, and to. the general well-being, protection, assistance, antd coun sel of the whole, such as the good Samaritan would have showed not only to the wounded and naked traveller, but to uny body of persons in less dis tressed circumstances whom he might have found in a s...

Mr. Escott produced an excellent loaf of bread,. which he said could be easily made at' 4Jd. the '41b. loaf, from wheat worth Ss. a bushel. The Rev. gentleman gave the following explanation of the process:-- Take a bushel of wheat, as it comi r from the mill;,and remove from it the course bran. Boil this bran in water, tilt it makes a thick gruel. Strain this through a cloth, and mix it with'the flour, Instead of water, having salt 'and yeast, as for other bread.

l7arte: ci -0 NATItv CusToMs.-Oa the demise of one of the tribe, his arms, war-instruments, and personal pro perty, are placed at sun-down on a funieral pile with the body; a circle is then described round the tomb, within which no one is allowed to intrude but the priest, who, when the setting sun proclaims the approach of evening, places a lighted torch in the hand, at the same moment igniting the pile ; he waits till its flickering light vanishes; his eyes are then directed to lleaven, and on beholding the first star in the sky, he exclaims, " There he goes with his fire-stick." I have known, again, several fune rals without any puch ceremony. The Lones are broken, and all collected into a bag or dilly, which is concealed in some hollow tree, or suspended in the air, and allowed to remain untouched, though not unheeded, by any passer-by. If during a march one black fellow is taken ill, either from old age, infirmity, or sickness, his friends, being obliged to proceed, lay in a ci...
CRIMINAL INFORMATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 April 1847
CRIMINAL INFORMATIONS. TnE Australian of yesterday condemns the course pursued by the Judges in refusing a rule nisi for a criminal ihformation against the proprietor of the Atlas, on behalf of the Rev. Mr. Bodenham, and accuses their Honors of not having sufficiently considered the duty which was cast upon Lhezn of pro tecting every member of the community from calumny and insult. As regards the general principle, that the law should interfere for the protection of every individual against libel, we cordially agree with our contemporary: but we cannot think that his strictures upon the Judges have been exactly called for in the present instance. The decision of the bench, ac cording to our impression of it, was, that the case was not of such a nature as to re quire the interposition of the Court, with its extraordinary power for the granting of cri minal informations. In moving for the rule nisi, the counsel for the applicant had, of course, argued that the article to which he allu...
